On the second floor of London’s favourite department store, Selfridges, you’ll find Aubaine, a French restaurant draped in wisteria.
Aubaine, the fancy and floral French restaurant, is a welcome retreat from the stresses of central London shopping. Grab yourself a glass of Champagne, a power breakfast, or a swanky seafood dinner, and dine beneath the wisteria-covered ceiling.
This stunning springlike setting is the ideal spot for a mid-shop refreshment, or simply for people-watching your fellow shoppers and diners. The menu has everything from eggs and French toast, to steak and lobster spaghetti – there’s even a wagyu sando served with black truffle fries, in a nice nod to the prevailing food trends of 2021. A big hit on Instagram (duh), the venue is draped in wisteria all year round, with a few added festive surprises during the winter season that bring a little Christmas sparkle to the restaurant.
If you’re the kind of soul who’s made it a life’s goal to tick all of London’s prettiest restaurants off of your bucket list, this purple-hued beauty is one you should be making a beeline for! Let’s be honest, even if that’s not your aim, it’ll be hard to turn down a beautiful spot with a delicious menu, won’t it?
